Rainbow Junktion Recipe Book launch Bistro – 21 February 2020

We are so excited to be launching our Rainbow Cookbook at a bistro night of delicious pay-as-you-feel food.

The cookbook is a culmination of a lot of work from staff, volunteers and customers and we are really proud of it. It will help us raise essential funds to keep our beautiful community cafe open.

Come and join us for dinner, celebrate with us and grab your copy (suggested minimum donation £5).

We are also looking for other local artists/zine makers who might want to sell their creations at the bistro … get in touch with emily@rainbowjunktion.org.uk if you would like to be involved.

Racial Justice Network Bistro – 7th February 2020

We are excited to be collaborating with fabulous local organisation Racial Justice Network in our next Bistro on 7th February.

‘We listen and work with communities on effective ways of challenging oppressive practices. We support individuals and groups to embolden confidence and skills to tackle challenges, and to run effective campaigns. We also support and encourage people to build solidarity, and to mobilise large communities of resistance to affect change. Our current work includes #StopTheScandal, a campaign to resist the use of mobile fingerprint scanners with links to immigration databases.’

Introduction to British Sign Language (BSL)

Have you ever thought about learning British Sign Language? Here is your chance!

We are hosting three introductory sessions to learn some basic British Sign Language and discuss deaf awareness. No previous experience is necessary.

The sessions are free and will run from 11am to 12.30pm on Mondays 27th January, 3rd and 10th February with the option of a Pay-As-You-Feel lunch in the Rainbow Junktion Cafe afterwards.

We hope this will then go on to become a self sustaining learning group.

Bistro with Big Al’s Big Choir

We invite you to the next amazing Rainbow Junktion Bistro on Friday 22 November at 7pm. This time we will be joined by BIG AL’S BIG CHOIR to bring some funk to your foodie delights! They’re even bring a live band with them!

Our goal is to put an end to unnecessary food waste and poverty. We collect the food that supermarkets, businesses, and charities throw away and redistribute it to our community. The food is pay-as-you-feel to make it accessible to everyone and anyone.

As part of this mission we run evening bistro/ fundraisers, such as this one. The bistro includes a three course meal, talks and performance including the Steel Pan Sparrows and BIG AL’S BIG CHOIR.

Please book a place and if you are unable to attend cancel your ticket through the Eventbrite website.
